The New York Times and ACORN October 17, 2008

Posted by Mr. Squirrel in News.

I was very happy to have my picture on the front of The New York Times website, but the squirrel community would be even more excited if the paper more closely analyzed Barack Obama’s extensive connections to ACORN!  

Yesterday, The Associated Press reported that the FBI is investigating ACORN and “looking at results of recent raids on ACORN offices in several states for evidence of a coordinated national scam.”  ACORN’s subsidiary, Citizens Services, Inc., was of course paid more than $800,000 by Barack Obama’s campaign to conduct “get-out-the-vote” projects—and that is not the only aspect of his relationship with ACORN that should raise questions about Obama’s judgment and which deserves scrutiny.  Highlighting these questions and pushing for answers just days before the 2008 presidential election shouldn’t just be left up to us squirrels: Mom may be excited that I’ve become something of a celebrity over the last few days, but honestly, the squirrel and human communities deserve to know more about Obama’s relationship with this group currently under federal investigation.
